Mordechai Vanunu, the Israeli whistleblower who exposed Israel’s nuclear weapons program in the mid-1980s, has been convicted of violating his parole
Under the terms of his release from prison, he is not allowed to leave Israel and is extremely restricted in meetings with foreigners. He was convicted of meeting with two U.S. citizens in east Jerusalem in 2013 without permission from Israeli authorities. Vanunu spent 18 years in prison, much of it in solitary confinement, after leaking details of Israel’s nuclear weapons program to the Sunday Times. The sentence for his most recent conviction has not yet been announced, but he could face additional prison time.
